Temporomandibular Joint disorder (TMD) is a problem affecting the chewing muscles and joints between the lower jaw and the base of the skull. Up to 25% of adults suffer from TMD at some stage in life – with symptoms ranging from face, jaw or neck and shoulder pain, headaches and painful clicking in the jaw.
Here at the Dentists of Didsbury, we offer Cerezen™ a new and clinically proven treatment for TMD. A set of devices are created just for you, which are to be worn in the ears.
The Cerezen™ device works by retraining the jaw to remain in a relaxed position to relieve TMD symptoms. The inserts are hollow, allowing you to hear, and so discreet, no one will know you are wearing them. The Cerezen™ device is designed to sit in the ear canal, they need only be removed for contact sports, swimming or showering, so you can go about your normal life.
After diagnosis by our dentist, a trained audiologist will take an impression of your ears. Your devices are then custom made using 3D printing technology, and delivered to our practice within two weeks.
You can talk to us today to take that important first step towards day and night-time relief from the painful symptoms of TMD.
